Congrats on your improvement!

 

What was your limit with Sams and how long have you had the account?

I had a $500. limit on my Sams card. After a year I hit the love button on the web site. They increased me to $1000. on the spot. I didnt see any inquires on my report.

Did you know that you can use your sam's club at Walmart and Vice-Versa.  I have both cards myself. GEMB will usually give CLI increases every 6-8 months but I have never know them to give increases before six months.
